A young boy looks down at mural filled walls in Austin, Texas.

A young boy, who recently painted, looks down into a pit of graffiti. Taking in the beauty, life, and vibes. This photo began by visiting HOPE Outdoor Gallery in Austin, TX with my two children. My youngest (shown in picture) child, dipped both hands and feet in a gallon of white paint. He proceeded to paint a mural using his and feet. Afterwards, he found a small ledge to sit on to rest and cool off from the heat. When I found my, normally wild, son sitting so still and quiet taking in the beauty of all the past artists who had visited the very same spot, was absolutely breath-taking. All humans, no matter what age, enjoy some type of art, regardless of age.
